Humphrey's is safe!

A rumor has spread around St. Louis that St. Louis University is moving to take Humphrey's by eminent domain. One fellow I met in a City aldermanic campaign suggested that it was "a done deal". I thought I had a property rights fight coming up with Fr. Biondi and St. Louis University.

I called the owner, Janis Mangelsdorf, and she assured me that the rumor was obsolete and that Humphrey's was safe. But she invited me to join her in a fight she had going with MoDOT over its failure to put up a sound wall to protect her home from the din of Highway 40. I am sure letters on her behalf would be appreciated.
